Nets Officially Become 'Brooklyn Nets,' Introduce New Team Gear

The New Jersey Nets' move to Brooklyn has been rumored for years, and now it appears that it's finally here. Franchise center Brook Lopez appeared today at an event to introduce the team's new "Brooklyn Nets" apparel.

The Brooklyn move has been in the works since 2004, when real estate developer Bruce Ratner bought the team as part of a plan to build Atlantic Yards, an upscale development project in downtown Brooklyn. Rap star Jay-Z also got in on the project, and Russian businessman Mikhail Prokhorov then became principal owner of the team in September 2009.

The Nets broke ground on the Barclays Center, where they plan to open their 2012-13 season, on March 11, 2010.

The Nets played their final game in New Jersey a week ago, losing 105-87 to the Philadelphia 76ers in front of a sold-out crowd of 18,711 at the Prudential Center. They finished the season 22-44.
